Playoff Time!

Playoff time is the best and worst time of the year for a Toronto sports fan. It is that time of year where Raptors and Leafs fans have blood pressure which is at an all time high, and also a time where the city becomes one. In coming from Toronto, rooting for a sports team such as the Raptors, Leafs, Blue Jays, and TFC, is something more than event on tv. When one of these teams are playing, you experience all emotions possible through the course of the game, much like the four seasons you experience during the course of the game. As the Raptors and Leafs are in the playoffs, the city is at an all time high, as the streets, Maple Leaf Square, and every restaurant in the city is packed. Playoff time in Toronto is a beautiful site, as a city with so many different kinds of people from different corners of the world, are one. Having a whole city behind your back is what often motivates the players in these games, as the passion from Toronto during playoff time is next to none. As making the playoffs is a great event, this also causes a lot people to stress out. You would think that making it to the playoffs having a 3-0 series lead is enough, but not to Toronto. Loosing 3-0 leads in series or even in games is seen as somewhat impossible, but not to us. I guess that is the beauty of being a Toronto sports fan, you hate to love them. In recent memory, i’ve never seen Toronto in a standstill moment until a famous home-run sent the Blue Jays into the divisional finals, and as I was listening to it on the radio, i’ve never loved my city more.
